Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Monday the 9th day of February, 2015.

It feels like it is warming up …..

Today is the 38th Birthday of my first born nephew “T” …..

He was born when I was 20.

That seems like a lifetime ago ….. guess that it was.

He was this energetic blonde haired little guy with “strawberry” coloured lips.

So so cute.

He was the smartest little one that I had ever known.

He asked the most absurd questions ….. things that I was pretty sure that I had not asked my Mother or Aunt.

So many stories to remember.

Whenever I take a trip down memory lane it always brings a smile to my face.

I always liked spending time with him as I was never bored and always kept on my toes.


“T” has grown into this great father of three boys (payback) and husband…

He started his own directional drilling company ( he is the only employee ).

Works hard …..

I am always pleased when he stops by to see his Aunt on his way to a job.

We go out for supper and then visit at home.

Happy Birthday my darling nephew.

I hope that you have a great Birthday.

I hope that you have great memories of me and you.

I treasure ours very much.

Special Hello to: my nephew “T” on his 38th Birthday.

Always, Carol and Alvin.


Thought for the day…..

Good Morning and Welcome to Tuesday the 25th day of November, 2014.

Today marks the “30th” Birthday of my eldest niece, “D.”

She is a kind and gentle soul who at this time is studying to become a registered nurse.

The nursing profession and future patients will be most blessed to have her with them.

So Happy Birthday my girl ….. we hope that you have the best Birthday.

At this very moment it is snowing here in Edmonton.

It seemed like one day it had pretty much melted and the next we have it all back again.

Well that is winter on the prairies in Canada.

I will start on my Christmas cards today and decided to take them with me to work.

Usually I start work early and stay late (with carpool) so it makes perfect sense to spend that time writing Christmas cards.

Why not?

Always good to multi-task ……

So on this snowy day I shall be at work like most of you …..

I hope that you take some time for yourself ….. remember be kind to you first, and then it is easy to be to others.

Believe in yourself ……

Special Hello to: the Birthday Girl ….. Happy 30th “D” ….. we love you.

Always, Carol and Alvin
